unique because if you look to america the biggest newspaper, "u.s.a. today" and "wall street journal" reach about approximately 3.5 million readers per day. the biggest t.v. show "america's got talent" i think is reaching 11.7, something like that. in germany, there's no t.v. that reaches everyday as much readers as "bild." it's a unique brand, a very strong marketplace. so we said let's use this figure in order to make our 12 million readers potential reporters. so we asked them to send us stories, particularly to send us video content, to send us photos. until today, more than 600,000 photos have been sent. we have printed 18,000. >> rose: am i going to want to read your publications here? or am i going to read in the print? >> you know what? i don't mind. i see ourselves as content producers, branded content producers, marketeers of branded content and if more and more readers will prefer to read it on tablet devices, i like it. because we save printing costs. we save distribution costs, we save paper costs. so in a way it is boosting our business. >> rose: but isn't it inevitable
